Let me know what you guys think
Looks nice...well made! Where did you use the mortar? Will that stick to wood / plastic?


This is the Ugly Junk thread, fancy words like "mortise" might not belong here....cheers!

No mortar in it, just wood and some trim glue, I currently do carpentry as my living so I did fancy it up a bit.

Any suggestions?
Mine is way off center. I've been using a smaller drill and just toughing it out, but it's way harder on the drill and my wrist. I bought a big honkin low rpm chinese POS from Harbor and I'm pretty sure it will rip my arm off if I don't do something. Some sort of universal joint socket adapter, probably for an impact wrench, sounds like the best bet to me.

That would work great, I know sears sells a u juint in 3/8 size. It would go like this

Drill-socket adaptor-u joint-socket

I woud be tempted to see if I could get the seller to replace the unit...this is crap, they should stand behind their product at least a little bit IMHO...since they buy these things cheap by the ton, maybe they have some room for replacement?

Except that they are designed and made to be driven by hand where the hole location is much less important. My local Ace Hardware also has the universal joints. It would be better to use two sets of u-joints.

Has anyone actually used one of the u-joints with their corona station yet? I would be interested to hear how it works out.

Also, how did you guys cut your water cooler jugs? I was able to cut up two plastic buckets with my xacto knife but this thing is some kind of crazy hard plastic.

That sounds dangerous and slightly insane. I think I will try a hacksaw tonight.
